“Would you please pick up Erin from school today? I’m just so booked up on clients and can’t find a way out,” Trish told me, swinging her long blond hair out of her face as I read the latest news on the front page of the paper. ‘Kidnapping in New Jersey,’ it read, and to me it seemed like it would never end. Everyday there was some messed up shit going on in the world, I thought as I took a sip of my burnt coffee at our small dining table.
“Hello, Derek, you in there? You haven’t heard a single thing I have said,” Trish baited me with piercing green eyes and that extremely annoying voice she gets when she’s irritated, while she pasted a bagel with cream cheese.
